IG Models Stole $600G From Two Seniors to Fund Lavish Lifestyle, Buy Pricey Shoes

A pair of swindlers scammed two senior citizens out of nearly $600,000 so they could bankroll their lavish lifestyles and addiction to fancy shoes, authorities said.

Crocodile leather sneakers, blue suede kicks and Christian Louboutin shoes were just some of the footwear allegedly purchased in the crime, according to court papers.

Tavoy Malcolm even used her Instagram account to model a pair of mint green Pigalle pumps by Louboutin that were bought with a dying woman’s credit card, officials said. Malcolm also cruised around in a Mercedes-Benz sedan, according to prosecutors.

The prosecutors accused Malcolm and Lorindo Powell of bilking a 77-year-old woman who ended up losing her house. They also scammed a 91-year-old woman during the last four months of her life.

Malcolm was arrested Friday and Powell on Saturday. They were remanded after arraignments in Brooklyn Federal Court.

The suspects, both Jamaican nationals, allegedly carried out multiple elder-fraud scams around New York for years. Malcolm, 26, and Powell, 29, showed a “total lack of conscience,” authorities said. They are facing up to 20 years behind bars if convicted of wire and bank fraud.

The scams usually involved a bogus claim that a senior citizen won money in a lottery or sweepstakes — but the lucky winners just needed to disclose some financial information or pay some taxes so they could get their winnings.

The $572,000 fraud against the first victim, the 77-year-old woman, started in 2006 when an unknown person contacted her about a windfall coming her way.

Powell soon took over for the other person and kept telling the woman to keep up on her payments. But the bogus tax payments put the woman behind on her mortgage, and she defaulted on her home loan as a result. Powell persuaded the woman to pass along the mortgage payments to him, too — not to the mortgage lender.

The elderly woman now lives in a rented room, authorities said.

The other victim also got snagged with the “sweepstakes” line.

Malcolm and Powell persuaded the woman to write checks to them and to let them take over her accounts. When the two got ahold of the woman’s credit card, prosecutors said, they racked up $10,000 at Barneys on shoes.

Powell and Malcolm were living together in Guttenberg, N.J., with Powell’s sister, who’s facing charges of cocaine importation and conspiracy to import cocaine.

Powell’s attorney Joseph Kilada said the charges are “very serious and we intend on defending them vigorously.”

Malcolm’s attorney Donald DuBoulay declined to comment.

    Only reason I don't want them to create a "Doing it for the gram" law is it would be just another weapon to use against blacks.

    But I hate these people doing dumb shit for likes.

    It's a typical Jamaican Lottery scam. Lotta yardies involved with this kinda shit. They even did an episode of American Greed on it last year.



    i'm not sure which entity leaves people more abused and lost; the Porn Industry or Bad Boy Records.

    Right. People fall victim to their own greed. Typically those type of scammers have foreign accents. Now you got people sounding like somebody at your bank appealing to your sensibilities and vulnerabilities. Old folks with money looking like food to em.

    I feel you bruh. What they eat don't feed me. We need to stop thinking every negro represents every negro. That is part of the reason why you see so much stupid shit going on right now. Negros think everything somebody black does is a reflection on themselves, so even stupid shit gets imitated because its most of the visuals you get so that's what we on now..

    While I agree with you whole heartedly,On the flip side the people who hold the power to change the course of not only our lives but our children's and so fourths lives, view as us one so in a sense....unfortunately....what other niggas eat is being projected to the masses who are clearly not smart enough to see through the bullshitt and it's making us shit....so a few niggas steal and now 9/10 white ladies are clinching their purse or creating unecessary space between them and said black person, police are profiling everybody over a few, etc

    So I think the ones who do not engage in that behavior myself included are obligated to separate from both cacs who view us as one and these neegas who make it possible for them to create laws/propaganda to fuck with us

    I agree. Even some of the guys I been knowing for 20 years. If you ain't on what I'm on to the point where your conversation isn't even positive if you on some dead end shit I can't even rock with you.
